It's no secret that we're in love with our little neighborhood here in Chinatown. Whether it's the architecture, history, or the people, there's always something catching our eye. And since we first opened our doors a few short years ago, we've been privy to see the neighborhood really take on a new face as countless businesses and restaurants are re-claiming this storied area of Honolulu.
Most recently, we've been salivating over a new restaurant that opened just down the street from us called The Pig and the Lady. Melding traditional, non-Westernized Vietnamese cuisine with progressive culinary trends to create dishes like the ever-popular "Pho French Dip Bahn Mi" sandwich, The Pig and the Lady has already attracted a huge following. The design of the restaurant is hip yet classic and the shared seating makes it easy to strike up a conversation with a stranger (soon to be friend). Everything on the menu is great, but we'd crawl across ground glass for the Pok Pok salad and the aforementioned Pho French Dip. If you're ever in Honolulu, it's a must. Trust us on this one.
